1982: BULLPEN BULLETINS (Marvel Comics)
Here's a BULLPEN BULLETIN published in Marvel Comics (US) dated August 1982 (so it was probably on the stands and in the shops around May/ June time) with a couple of interesting news stories: the G.I. JOE comic book being plugged on TV (a canny rules'n'regulations dodge which allowed Hasbro to show the toys in animated form... because they were showing scenes from the comic which happened to feature the toys and not - of course - plugging the toys themselves. Ahem) and the announcement that Marvel itself had shifted digs to new accommodation on Park Avenue South. See this MARVEL AGE MAGAZINE article (here and here) for more.
